Civil rights are privacy rights guaranteed and protected by the U.S. Constitution and federal laws enacted by Congress, such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Citizens` rights include protection against unlawful discrimination. The judiciary, particularly the Supreme Court, plays a crucial role in interpreting the scope of civil liberties, as a single Supreme Court decision can change the recognition of a right across the country. Federal courts have been instrumental in organizing and supervising school desegregation programs and other programs established to eliminate discrimination at the state or local level.
